[ cheers and applause ] thank you! thanks, guys. >> reporter: mitt romney thanked his donors, volunteers and supporters and says beside choosing his wife ann, picking paul ryan as a runningmate was the best decision he has ever made. ron, paula. r
or when you did. i want to bring gerri willis in, he is at romney headquarters in boston. have they spoken yet? >> reporter: i can't answer that question, but crowd here, that has grown in last hour, wants to believe, wants to believe ma karl rove said, just moments ago, he came up, ottoman ter here, speaking about the number of votes about how the republican party could take ohio, mitt romney could take ohio. huge cheer. came up from audience, people came in to the room, came into the room to listen to what was going on. this crowd now very emotional. i just walked through it people watching the television, trying to discern what is happening, that i want to believe their candidate has not lost. we still have no concession from mitt romney's campaign, 9 or hae we heard they have intention. my colleague next to me carl cameron, he started talking about karl rove's comments, a big cheer went up with the crowd, they wanted to show they are here, and supportive of their candidate. they believe that he should win this election. as moments go by, now it is getting quieter but no less packed thi
that gave him more latitude with the conservative base of the party. >> woodruff: speak of boston, and other places, let's hear now from our colleagues-- actually, ray suarez is in chicago. he and margaret warner are at the two presidential campaign headquarters, but, ray, we're going to come to you first. are you in chicago, and that's where president obama is tonight. >> that's right. he's just a few miles away. he's not here yet. and neither are a lot of the senior officials from the campaign. i think they probably want to wait to see a little bit more, but illinois senior senator, senator dick durbin is here, and there have been a lot of poll closings, a lot of projections, but so far no surprises. what do you need to see before you can really relax? >> some of the key battled ground states-- florida, virginia, ohio, and of course when we get in the midwest, a little closer to my activity in the last few months for the president, taking a look at wis cons and i know iowa. if we can get the job done in the midwest, and i hope we do glie you're not up this sickle. when you don't have a rac
our colleague ray swawrers and hopefully we'll be joined by margaret warner in boston. ray is at the presidential candidate night headquarters in chicago. ray, what is the sense right now? when we talk about this ground game issue, what does the campaign say about what they have over the romney campaign in terms of ground game? >> they said this time instead of sending volunteers and sending field workers from state to state, they concentrated much more heavily on using people that people know. i mean it sounds kind of obvious. but all the research shows that when someone you know talks about you... talks to you about casting the vote in the first place or voting for the person you prefer, that has a lot more impact than somebody showing up at your door with paperwork, a leaflet or a pitch for a candidate. so they've put much more emphasis on having people work their own neighborhoods this time around. and they say they have hit their marks, that they are getting out their numbers. and so far so good. gwen? >> ifill: well, ray, i'm also curious. you're standing there at the
, nancy. jan crawford has been covering the romney campaign. she is in boston tonight. jan? >> well, scott, governor romney just landed here about an hour ago after making campaign stops in that key state of ohio and in pennsylvania. he talked to reporters on the way back on the plane and he said he felt good about this campaign. they hadn't left anything in the locker room and that he thinks they're going to win. he said he just finished his victory speech. he's not written a concession speech. now, the mood inside the campaign tonight, scott, is one of cautious optimism, i'd say. but there is a little bit of nervousness and here's why: campaign sources that i'm talking with tonight say they are encouraged by the high numbers of republican turnout they're seeing in these swing states like ohio, florida, virginia. they believe that will outperform john mccain in 2008. that's the key to this election. they really had to run up the score in those areas. but here's where the nervousness comes in. they're also seeing some of the president's turnout in some of those democratic areas like in nor

. but this is something to cheer, the people in boston at romney headquarters. >> john, i know you're looking to the screen as well. iowa being projected now for barack obama. >> well, that is a piece of bad news for the romney campaign. again, remember, mitt romney needed to win most of the nine swing states. not just a couple of them. most of them. he's still got to do that. he's not out of the game, but if you take the state of iowa, you got colorado out there, if president obama can hold nevada and the state of colorado, it doesn't matter what happens in any of these other states. he'll be over the finish line. so big challenges, more for president obama, fewer more romney, but he's still in the game. >> waiting on too close to call races which of course have been really critical. ohio being number one. florida, as well. we know now north carolina and, of course, iowa. >> larry, he needs 21 votes. >> yeah. there's a pattern. i mean, let's face it. there's a pattern here. and whether you're romney supporter or not, you got to look at this thing. the pattern spills over into the u.s. senate
roberts was there in boston again today with a recap, john? >> the governor put on a brave face. but he was experiencing bitter disappointment and a long, long road to get where he was. it does go to show that the were accurate in what they were hoying and always happens in every four years. they were looking attractive in closing days, they really weren't. the real question it. broadly divided as the country is and big issues facing us, is this a recipe for grid lock or will it spark dipartisan legislation. mitt romney said he would reach across the aisle and he asked those in charge next year to get something done. >> the nation as you know is at a criticical point we can't risk political bickers and partisanship. we have storeach across the aisle. we look to teachers and professors and county on you to teach and inspire our children with passion and discovery. >> the president pledged to meet with mitt romney to talk about the problems . if the republican party hopes to win back the white house it has work to do. governor romney lost among women and lost the hispanic vote. president
's in boston. j. mart, if you can hear me amid the hoopla here at the newseum. you're a student at virginia, you've been e-mailing me all night about problems you're detecting in virginia. tell us the problems you see and why and what it means. >> the margins in conservative -- [inaudible] in the suburbs around richmond, chesterfield county is the biggest one, comparable to '08. in 2008 john mccain lost the commonwealth of virginia by seven points. the bottom line, barack obama can do a little bit worse across virginia and still win that state. if he wins the state, there's no path to the presidency for mitt romney. we'll get the western suburbs, look at the outer suburbs of northern virginia, the margins are comparable or a little bit better for romney than they were for mccain four years ago. so unless something big happens in the two big jurisdictions still being counted, virginia beach and fairfax up by washington, d.c., i think that the commonwealth of virginia is going to stay blue and give president obama a second term. >> republicans knew that there was trouble there, or has this al

soon. joining us from romney headquarters in boston is chairman and president of a company. your thoughts on what we know so far. 82 electoral votes for governor romney versus 64 for president obama. what's the mood there at romney headquarters? >> the mood is very good up here. it's very upbeat. there's a great sense of enthusiasm and energy in the room. so far so good. it's obviously going to be a close race, but i still believe that the governor is going to win with at least 300 electoral votes. i think for a sitting president to come into the election without 50% is a tough hurdle for him. the governor has run one hell of a campaign the last six weeks. so we're optimistic. i have learned a long time ago not to count chickens before they hatch but i feel strongly that we've had a good candidate, he's run a wonderful race. we've had a lot of support from a lot of people. and as i said, i'm guard ledly optimistic. i rather have opposition than the other side right now. >> what state are you focused on mostly? we have florida having closed but too close to call. pennsylvania too
want to start with byron york. byron, good morning to you. in boston we find you there. let's go through this. how did the president's team put together this winning coalition. >> he reassembled the coalition he had in 2008. did extremely well with the groups i had done well with before, women, especially unmarried women, blacks, latinos, a number of groups republicans thought would be discouraged and would drift away from the president, they didn't drift away from the president. going to obama rallies, they were pretty fired up and they showed up on election day. bill: you have been talking to the romney camp. what are they saying about how and where they came up short. >> i ran into romney's entire brain trust. many of them were pointing a finger at hurricane sandy. that romney had momentum in the polls and after that the momentum was broken. and some said that obama had done enormous damage in may, june and july. but there were big issues at stake in this campaign. two different views of governing, higher taxes were more regulation and more spending and the vote terse chose pr

"the dallas morning news," the environmental protection agency has temporarily suspended bp from new contracts in the united states because of a, quote, lack of business integrity. existing contracts will not be affected. the deep water horizon spill of 2010 resulted in the death of 11 platform workers. and you're done, donny. >> i was literally about to go out and run up to it. >> you can regroup for a minute. joining us now with a look at the "politico playbook," executive editor there, mr. jim vandehei. good morning. >> how you doing, willie? >> doing all right. we were talking about your peer at the top of the show. take us behind the scenes. steve rattner and he's not alone is pessimistic that a deal will get done before the end of the year. >> here's a reason that y
of "the boston globe" about the governor romney style of leadership. later on, more on the president obama governing style. we will be right back. ♪ [video clip] >> the same path that we are on means $20 trillion in debt at the end of a second term, crippling unemployment, staggering take-home pay, depressed home values, and unless we change course we may be looking at another recession. so, the question of this election comes down to this -- do you want more of the same, or do you want real change? >> we know what change looks like and we know what governor romney is selling. giving more power to the biggest banks is not change. another $5 trillion tax cut for the wealthy is not change. refusing to answer questions about the details of your policy until after the election is definitely not change. we are ruling out compromise with the tea party folks, that is not change. changing the facts of your opinion during the campaign is not change. >> tuesday night, watch live coverage of the election. throughout the night, your reactions by phone, e-mail, facebook, and twitter. >> "washington j

eastern time to concede the race. jan crawford is in boston where the republican nominee spoke to his supporters. >> reporter: governor romney waited about an hour to concede after the state of ohio was called for the president. everyone thought it's over but the romney campaign wanted to see some more of the actual votes from some of those suburbs around cincinnati. they didn't want to give up. when colorado was declared for the president, the campaign knew that was it, romney picked up the phone and called the president. >> this election is over, but our principles endure. i believe that the principles upon which this nation was founded are the only sure guide to aesurgent economy and to renewed greatness. >> reporter: a defeated mitt romney was gracious. >> i believe in america. i believe in the people of america. >> reporter: after running for president for 17 months, his campaign came up empty. >> like so many of you, paul and i have left everything on the field. we have given our all to this campaign. >> reporter: there was clear disappointment as the reality of what could have

correspondent is at governor romney's headquarters in boston. let's begin with you. >> they're excited, optimistic anxious and awaiting the result. it's an open question as to one might know until 1:00 a.m. or future days. the romney campaign is watching closely florida, virginia and ohio. there are very few victory strategies contemplated by boston, the romney campaign, that don't include the buckeye state and they're concerned about signs of high turn-out in the northern part of ohio where the detroit auto bail-out was a big mallet which the president pounded mr. romney. on the southern border of ohio along kentucky, particularly along cincinnati, hamilton county, big optimism and turn-out for the republican campaign. virginia, florida, ohio romney believes so go though so goes the country. romney has only written one speech, a victory speech. >> carl cameron. let's get straight to the president's camp in chicago and ed henry. >> shep, the president has been getting very wistful. it started in iowa what started the obama movement. he said today he was crying partly because it was col

in the edwards school in boston, i use these examples because there are examples where we see things work, then let's use it to engage kids. we know if kids are engaged in music, they don't drop out. we know if you actually figure out what will spark an interest in kids whether it's robot particulars, for me it was civics because i was a social studies teacher, arts, physical education, sports, if you spark an interest in an add less sent, they'll stay. >> i'll go a step further. it seems like there was a time, randi, where parents were at fault. the schools are doing what they can, now it's parents, parents, parents. now it's teachers. they're insufficient, inadequate. we can't have them making living wages or any of those kinds of things. >> right. really, really important but we're going to bash them and we don't want to hear their voice. >> it feels like not only do you need these kinds of things to keep students engaged, but teachers in order to feel excited and make a difference, you can't have 50 kids in a classroom and be teaching to a standardized test and feel at all points like
